Getting Feedback About East London Learning Disability Services

The Trust is hosting three individual feedback sessions in the London boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Newham and Hackney (including The City of London) to find out what type of support and services people with a Learning Disability need

ELFT is working with service users with a Learning Disability and their carers to undertake a Health Needs Analysis project. The project will involve speaking with families in Newham, Tower Hamlets, Hackney and the City of London. The Trust is holding three events - one in each borough - inviting people to attend to share their views and experiences. Individuals and their families are warmly encouraged to share their views.

Ruth Cooper, ELFT's Strategic Lead for Learning Disability said, "We are keen to ensure that our services support people with a Learning Disability, and their carers and families, to stay healthy and to get the most out of life. The best way to achieve this is to hear it direct from them. So please come along for a cuppa and a chat. Everyone is welcome."

What is a Health Needs Analysis?

A Health Needs Analysis involves talking to people who use Learning Disability services to understand what they need and what types of support would help them in their daily lives and also help them to reach their longer term goals

Engagement Meetings

We are hosting three meetings, inviting service users and carers who  use ELFT's Learning Disability Service, and those who have been discharged in the last 12 months. Service users/carers can be paid for attending the meetings.
